6:49am
>> what happens, you get little kinks in the atmosphere and you get spun in the foyer as these waves come off the coast of africa. we call them easterly waves. during the peak of hurricane season, which is right now, that spin in the atmosphere, sometimes showers and thunderstorms can originate and grow up and around that spin. this is where you get the storm development. you meningitissed that they don't all originate off the coast of africa. many times, they can originate in the gulf of mexico or off old frontal systems that hang out across the gulf or across the southern atlantic. >> typically, however the strongest hurricanes that we see do originate off the coast of africa from the tropical waves that leave the west coast of africa, move out over the warm waters of the atlantic. of this a lot of warm water to work with. they intensify, become very big. >> so now we are looking at a live hd radar.
